Several of the arrests occurred in the city’s notorious western sector Comuna 13, such as alias “Piña,” who was wanted for the murder of two minors on May 12.
A member of the local gang “La Paradera,” accused of double murder, attempted murder and possession of firearms, was caught in the Comuna 13 neighborhood of Juan XXIII.
Alias “Chuki,” a 21-year-old who allegedly murdered a 68-year-old man in July last year in a stray bullet incident, was also captured in Comuna 13.
Among the remaining people captured, police highlighted the arrest of alias “Ojon,” wanted for the murder of a 15-year-old and 23-year-old in January of this year.
With these arrests, police hope to be able to close the files on a least 10 murder cases in the city.
